Title type

There was a boy staring right at him. Connor’s neck prickled. He stared back, and couldn’t stop. The boy was about his age. He didn’t have a backpack or jacket, like most of the travellers. It was like looking into a mirror. Kind of creepy, actually. Connor shivered.

Connor’s Easter holiday is certain to be an exciting time. Not everybody gets to travel to Greece and Turkey on a cruise ship! From the minute Connor and his family arrive, however, bizarre things start to happen. He keeps seeing a a boy who looks almost exactly like him. After Connor’s ship ID card goes missing at the Parthenon, he begins to be accused of doing all sorts of things he hasn’t, like running up charges on an Internet account he’s not supposed to have – and his parents don’t seem to believe he’s innocent. Connor suspects that his Dopplganger might have something to do with it. But who is he and what are his motives?
